Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office has confirmed a crash on J Turner Butler Boulevard involving two SUVs.
The accident happened when two SUVs were traveling side by side on J Turner Butler Boulevard at a moderate speed. Officers said the hood of one of the SUVs suddenly opened while in motion and it flew up and hit the windshield.
The driver’s panicked state and lack of visibility caused him to lose control of his vehicle. The SUV swerved and forcefully struck the other SUV, a Lexus RX350, traveling by its side and then came to a halt. The Lexus SUV then veered off the road due to the impact and crashed into the guardrail by the road.
The driver of the Lexus remained trapped in the vehicle. Upon arrival, first responders intervened and extricated him from the SUV. EMS then arrived and stabilized the victim before flying him to a nearby hospital for medical treatment. His current condition is unknown and authorities have yet to disclose his identity to the public.
Meanwhile, the other driver did not suffer any injuries. The accident remains under investigation. At this time, police have yet to release any additional information to the press.
